tv   Studio B With Shepard Smith  FOX News  April 8, 2010 3:00pm-4:00pm EDT

3:00 pm
soon. i'm megyn kelly, shepard smith takes over. >> the news begins anew, crews in west virginia getting within a thousand feet of the rescue chamber before they had to evacuate again. how long before they make another attempt? box 2. an alarming case unfolding in east texas. people there finding more than 2 dozen suspicious devices in a few weeks. at least one a pipe bomb. cops make an arrest. wait until you hear about the suspect and the reason the case is not closed. box 3, the brother of the figure skater nancy kerrigan facing more serious charges in the death of their father, ahead on "studio b," unless breaking news changes everything. first, a midair security scare, a potential diplomatic rumble and delayed travelers because one guy couldn't wait to fire up a smoke.
3:01 pm
mohammed al madadi, a low level staffer it he qatar embassy. that's an important part, that he's a diplomat for the qatar embassy. al madadi was on a flight from d.c. to denver yesterday when investigators say he lit a cigarette in one of the bathrooms, for the past 30 years, you're not supposed to do that. when asked about the smell of smoke, several reports say al madadi joked about trying to light his shoes. that scene is a reference to the show bomber, richard reid. officials say the air marshals restrained him. by the time the plane landed it had military jets escorting it. the reaction is subdued. one passenger's wife says her husband was irritated but not scared. >> no, more annoyed than scared. it wasn't very -- doesn't sound
3:02 pm
like it was alarming. >> of course in most cases the person who caused the not so alarming problem would be in deep trouble. but in the case of al madadi, he may be off the hook legally. katherine airline is following this. diplomatic immunity keeps you from parking tickets in new york but does it allow you to smoke butts in the bathroom of a plane? >> the bottom line is even though he has immunity, they anticipate al madadi will be on the first flight out of the of united states perhaps this evening. so it looks like his time in the united states has come to a quick conclusion. it's significant, the briefing an hour and a half ago, pj crowley said he had diplomatic immunity and there would be no criminal charges against him for the alleged acts on the aircraft. >> saying something about shoes is a dicey thing to do in these days. what would happen to an average
3:03 pm
citizen? >> you know, you or me on a flight like that, you would face at least a very stiff fine for smoking on the plane, but the one that's a the killer for you is making a verbal threat on an aircraft that could be interpreted as a threat relating to terrorism. you don't joke about bombs or lighting shoes on fire or about your underwear these days. so the typical charges would be criminal charges against an individual, though in this particular case, for a variety of reasons, one being diplomatic immunity and the circumstances of what happened, he's not the facing charges. >> i heard he came off cocky and he's probably wonder if that cigarette was worth it. i don't know. >> you know, probably not. aid call last night from a diplomatic contact in washington who knows him. he said he's a young guy and he's a hardcore smoker and he
3:04 pm
said that -- i i don't want go into the details because i probably shouldn't but he was not surprised he had taken that move on the aircraft. but the issue here really is that this event kicked into play one of the most massive security operations that we've seen in several months here in washington. i mean the national operations center for homeland security kicked into gear, the senior brass within homeland security, they sent a system wide alert. that's what happens when you have an incident that may be of significance. so everything was up and running just because of this smoke in the bathroom. >> shepard: probably next time, put a patch on or something. >> a little in this nick rhett. >> anything is better than this. he would like to hear from you. just because this guy's a diplomat, should that keep investigators from seeking
3:05 pm
charges? a little later we'll talk to the judge, judge napolitano, about diplomatic immunity. >> mine safety officials tell us the families of four missing coal miners have to wait at least a few more hours for crews to resume the certain for their loved ones. emergency workers have been struggling to locate the miners because of the poisonous gases. early today crews entered the mine but had to hightail it out of there after they came close to the special chamber where the miners could have taken refuge this. this is stacked with fresh water. there's pressure air canisters, food, fire extinguishers. the miners can survive four days. the dream unfolded money when an explosion occurred in the mine, 25 miners confirmed dead. that makes it the worst u.s.
3:06 pm
mining disaster in two decades. all family and coworkers can do is hold out hope until this evening. our chief correspondent jonathan hunt is there. what is happening? >> they've just about got the second hole drilled, the critical second hole, which is wider than the first. that will allow more of the gases to escape. what they're doing is dropping a fan down there to speeded process of getting the methane out of the mine. they'll put monitors down there and over the next few hours, read the levels of methane. they believe by 6:00 p.m., they will have it reduced to a decent level whereby the rescuers can go in. they'll submit a plan at that point and hope to have the rescue crews underground sometime around 7:00 or 8:00 p.m. this evening. >> shepard: how are the families? >> it's obviously very, very
3:07 pm
tough. very frustrating. very emotional for the families. those who do not know the fate of their loved ones in that mine have chosen not to speak to the media. but they have been speaking regularly to the west virginia governor. i asked him today exactly that question. how are they doing. this was his answer. >> everybody's got to have a sliver of hope. this is a horrendous explosion and they know ow our chances are slim but they're strong christians and believe strongly and hope for a miracle. >> reporter: sometime tonight, shep, or in the early hours of tomorrow morning, if everything goes to plan, they may finally get their answer as to whether or not there's a miracle underneath in mountain. >> shepard: jonathan hunt live at montcoal in west virginia. we'll go back to him on a gray day there. president obama standing with the president of an old cold war
3:08 pm
enemy and signing the strongest nuclear treaty in 20 years. >> today is an important milestone for nuclear security and nonproliferation and for u.s.-russia relation. it demonstrates the determination of the united states and russia, the two nations that hold over 90% of the world's nuclear weapons to pursue responsible global leadership. >> it would reduce the number of warheads russia and the united states hold by one-third in seven years. it has to be passed by the senate and russian legislature. the president called the treaty a step to a goal he laid out of the word free of nuclear weapons. it has critics on both sides, the republican national committee saying president obama is sacrificing future weapons programs and caving to russian demand. the other end of the spectrum
3:09 pm
says is has loopholes allow hundreds of weapons over the set cap. >> the bit of business was to sign the nuclear arms reduction treaty but the other key component is a reflection of what aides tell us is a improvement in relation between the two countries. no longer is there a drift as president medvedev said a year ago in the relationship. no longer is there deep suspicion about motives of the president obama spoke with the treaty early today. >> when the united states and russia are not able to work together on big issues, it's not good for either of our nations, nor is it good for the world. together we have stopped that drift and proven the benefits of cooperation. >> reporter: and of course the big issue here, aside from nuclear arms reduction, is iran
3:10 pm
and future sanctions and it's clear, and the headline here, the russian are onboard with some type of sanctions passed by the united nations security council. it was defined clearly by russian president dmitry medvedev with president obama in an 85-minute meeting before the signing ceremony and afterward president medvedev outlined the approach. >> sanctions by themselves seldom obtain results though it's difficult to do without them. those sanctions should be smart and aimed not only at nonproliferation but also to -- rather than to produce -- [ indiscernible ] >> the other issue of course for the russians is no regime change in iran and no sanctions that create economic havoc. the united states is onboard. the next country in line is china, the president of that
3:11 pm
country will be in washington next week for a meeting we're led to believe is about winning china's acceptances or abstention. >> major garrett, thank you. new charges in the death of the olympian nancy kerrigan's father. the violent attack on her dad started with an argument over the use of the family telephone. an arrest in the case of a suspicious explosion sieve device a series of them in east texas. cops believe they have their man. in his wheelchair. why do they think he did it? "studio b" is back in 90 seconds. @=h
3:12 pm
3:13 pm
the feds say this guy dropped more than 30 home made bombs into mail mailboxes in east texas because he's mad at the government. he's left the state on edge for months of the police arrest this had man. 52-year-old larry eugene north. he reportedly tried to put another bomb in another mailbox in tiler, texas. orange is not his color. another bomb said to have been found in north's truck and prosecutors call the crimes nothing short of domestic terrorism. >> actions placed this community in fear of performing the
3:14 pm
simplist of basic daily tasks like mailing a letter, something we've enjoined the ability to do over 100 years. today that fear stops. >> shepard: according to investigators they believe he acted alone. with us, first assistant united states attorney for the eastern district of texas. >> glad to be here. thank you. >> catch a dude in a wheelchair putting bombs in mailboxes. why did he do this? >> the investigation is continuing but sort of the two motives we've been able to derive out of the investigation is one, like you said, he's disenchanted with the federal government and a second motive was that he had a bad financial dealings with someone else and targeted that individual and other people that he perceived that helped that individual. so he -- looks like he had essentially two motives but the
3:15 pm
investigation is ongoing. >> shepard: mad at the federal government. so he put pipe bombs in people's mailboxes. he's half baked. there he is in his wheelchair. he does not look like a domestic terrorist. >> you never know what it looks like. this community has been through the mill, so to speak. they have had to suffer with this worry for several weeks now and we're now glad it's over. >> shepard: does he seem remorseful? >> all i can tell you is he is cooperating. that's pretty much all i can tell you right now. >> shepard: what are the potential consequences if convicted? >> he's currently charged with possessing and placing an unregistered destructive device, essentially a bomb. that one count carries with it a maximum of ten years in prison. of course we're still
3:16 pm
investigating. there's a possibility of other charges later on. but if -- in a sense, you could actually charge that one charge for every single device that was placed. >> shepard: he's got a captain kangaroo thing going on. >> he's got something going on. >> shepard: indeed. britt featherston, good of you thank you. >> thank you very much. >> united states attorney, i said da. >> that's right. our prayers are with the people of west virginia. >> they'll appreciate that. they're a tightknit folks like a lot of people in east texas. i hope for a miracle there. >> amen. the brother of the figure skater nancy kerrigan -- man, alive, she's been through it, hasn't she? remember her crying on the ice, why? why? it was a good question. how her brother faces manslaughter charges in the
3:17 pm
death of her father. prosecutors say mark kerrigan, this character here, grabbed his father by the neck and damaged his throat which caused what turned out to be a heart attack, which killed him. we are told it was over an argument over the telephone. the family does not blame mark kerrigan because the father already had a heart condition and the grabbing him by the throat, apparently they don't see that as horrible. he technically died of cardiac arrest. molly line has the news and is in our boston newsrooms. he was indicted for assault and battery. what led to the new, more serious charge? >> this is the result of the grand jury proceedings. but prosecutors have pretty strong words about mark kerrigan's actions, saying they were cruel, he did this in a drunken rage and had complete disregard for his safety.
3:18 pm
new charges of manslaughter. >> we're learning details about what happened leading up to the argument over the telephone. who argues over a telephone anymore? doesn't everybody have cell phones? >> this started about 7:30 in the evening, mark kerrigan having an altercation with a female. police were there. the father went home to help with that incident. over the course of six hours, mark kerrigan, the son, began to drink and became intoxicated and the phone had been shut off. he was upset about that and the father was trying to keep him from repeatedly calling the woman. mark kerrigan went into the father's bedroom, yelling obscenities and the father came down and the altercation took place where the throat was grabbed. we're hear more about this in court tomorrow and for months to come. >> shepard: good luck with that.
3:19 pm
worth it. >> afghan president hamid karzai recently said he would join the taliban if the u.s. didn't leave him alone. interesting reaction from inside karzai's own government. and threats against the united states speaker of the house. listen to this. man accused of harrising nancy pelosi breaks down in court. wait until you see this. you may have tried supplement pills to combat joint discfort

3:21 pm
3:22 pm
>> shepard: he's out in only u.s. servicemen known to be in the captivity of the taliban in afghanistan or held captive. one day after militants released new video of private bo bergdahl the u.s. military is stepping up efforts to find him.
3:23 pm
militants captured him and in the video he pleads for release and says he wants to go home. this is a still picture and it's important to note we can't verify when or where it was taken. we don't show videos thought to be propaganda. we don't play that. bergdahl does pushups to show he's in good shape. last year the taliban threatened to execute him unless the u.s. released certain prisoners. coalition forces released a statement calling the video a deplorable act of propaganda. >> in the afghan capital of kabul, police arrested the largest would be team of suicide bombers ever captured. according to the government reports, police detained the five as they attempted to enter the city in an suv. a tip led to the arrest and the
3:24 pm
group has links to al qaeda. a deputy police commander went on to say he had the -- had the suspects evaded capture it would have been a disaster. the afghan president karzai threadenned to join the taliban if outside countries didn't stop putting pressure on him. a spokesman for the afghan government says the president was shocked by the report and the claims did not make sense, unquote. the story took off when lawmakers claimed president kaz told them he might join the taliban. that troubled the obama administration which may cancel karzai's next visit to the white house. conner powell in kabul, afghanistan with more. it feels like they're putting him in a time out of sorts. >> reporter: well, shepard, there's been long controversy
3:25 pm
here with president karzai and there's concern about his behavior. he's been accused of saying one thing in english and another in the local afghan dialect. u.s. and international officials say threatening to join the taliban over a political dispute is going too far. the irony is in recent months, the international community has been pushing president karzai to assert himself to take a greater role and lead in being president in afghanistan. his supporters say this is part of being an independent leader, he's trying to prove to afghans he's not a puppet of the international community but it has very, very much concerned the international community, especially u.s. officials. he's taking criticism by other afghan officials who say this is not the way to prove he's an independent leader and not the way to assert his power. >> to bring good governments torques bring the rule of law torques take care of corruption,
3:26 pm
to pay attention to the needs of the people of this country so they can be part of the process, not to alienate those trying to help us in this country. >> reporter: president karzai blames the media and his spokes man says it's a misunderstanding. he's walking a fine line politically. he doesn't want to alienate the international community but wants to show the locals he's an independent leader. these comments, according to various u.s. and international officials, do nothing to help bring peace and stability and it will be a long time, if he continues to make these comments, before those goals are achieved. >> conner powell live in kabul, afghanistan. good to see you and thank you. you're not going to believe this. the guy that qatar diplomat caught smoking a cigarette on the plane and the fighter jets following him, this guy?
3:27 pm
listen up. guess where he was going. he was going to denver to visit a jailed al qaeda agent. not kidding. the judge is in and a person from the plane will be live with us next.

3:30 pm
new information about the guy to caused the situation. here he is gun smiling man from qatar. muhammad al madadi was going to visit a jailed al qaeda agent. let me say a again. he was travel to go denver for a visit with a jailed al qaeda agent. it's not clear who the agent is or what the meeting was about. the transportation security administration officials say al madadi lit up the smoke in the bathroom in the plane and triggered a response from the united states military. inviter jets. he's a low level diplomat in d.c. it ended safely but not before federal officials spent hours interviewing him and other passengers. one passenger was tim bernie, sitting near al madadi and got a firsthand look at what went down. thank you. >> you bet. >> he decided to sneak a smoke.
3:31 pm
what was his tude like? >> i was not aware that anything was going on until we were landing. i didn't smell smoke but the approach was lower and quicker than normal so it was evident that something was going on. >> you saw him, right? how was his attitude? >> he was very cocky. i was in the seat in front of him and i could hear the air marshal next to him after we landed talking to him and i heard him say something about the embassy. he was calm. it was as if i was talking to my seat mate. but you could tell there was heightened interest in him. when they handcuffed him and took him off the plane, you would have thought it was any other day, like we normally depart the plane. it was a cocky, i don't care type of attitude. >> shepard: i guess that's what comes with -- was anybody scared? it sounds like it was a chill event. >> i got to tell you, you have
3:32 pm
to give credit to the captain of the plane and flight attendants, they community indicated what they could and i was sitting by them and they had things under control. you know, there was nothing -- i think everybody gained confidence from that. >> there happened for two air marshals. >> i guess so. when we landed added attendant made it clear not to get on our cell phones, we came on quickly and said do not get on your cell phones. a gentleman in front of me on the aisle, an air marshal, was on the phone discussing the person behind me and another air marshal was sitting behind me. there were two. >> tim burney, a person -- a passenger on the flight with a dude from qatar who decided to sneak a smoke and scare everybody half to death.
3:33 pm
but not the people on the plane. as we reported, al madadi may get out of this without legal repercussions because he's got diplomatic status. judge andrew napolitano can explain immunity. senior judicial analyst and sitting judge for the new jersey supreme court. the only people who don't -- by the way, parking in a no standing zone is $115. but you don't have to pay if you're a diplomat. >> if you're a diplomat, you don't have to obey the laws at all. >> shepard: you can smoke cigarettes on planes. >> you can be stopped but you can't be prosecuted for it. you can be restrained from violating the law but can't be prosecuted, tried or convicted. >> shepard: if you go 90 miles an hour up park avenue. >> they may strip of you immunity or deport you. if they strip you of immunity, if you wage war against the
3:34 pm
country they strip of you diplomatic immunity -- >> shepard: anything short of waging war. >> you get deported. if he intentionally harmed a human being, that would be akin to waging war. the government would hold him and ask him government to strip him of diplomatic immunity. qatar is one of our closest allies. >> shepard: i've been to that base. it's bigger that holly springs. >> bigger than that. we have enormous amounts of military personnel. >> shepard: it's hard to describe how big it is. >> correct. as for what he was doing in the united states -- >> shepard: but it didn't exist, it's not there. >> they don't like to talk about it. people in qatar are not permitted to talk about it. as for what he was doing in colorado, i don't want to scare you, but what is located not far from the denver airport? florence, california. what's in florence colorado?
3:35 pm
super max. who is in super max? zacarias ma sawy, richard reid, the most dangerous people in the country. they can all lawfully receive visitors. >> shepard: we know who was visiting. a state department official and -- i just got it. a state department official and another person close to the matter said mohammed al madadi was going to visit ali al-marri for a visit. they frequently visit foreigners to make sure they're treated well. >> our officials do it too, americans incarcerated in other countries. it's one of the things diplomats do. if they exchange incriminating or harmful information, it's the price you pay for diplomatic relation with friends, some of

3:37 pm
>> shepard: they don't have resources everybody else in the country does in that part of the world so they got to be buddies with us and they put -- one more time? yeah, i get that from the stage manager. the thing with, we're big time buddies. >> we pay rent for the real estate we occupy and it has a rebate for protection we provide them in return for being there. we pay less rent in return for being their military as well as the frontier of our military in the middle east. i've not been there. you have. >> shepard: it's quite something. >> diplomatic immunity is a strange bird that goes both ways. if we start throwing too many of theirs out, they'll throw ours out. >> shepard: i'm applying for diplomatic immunity and running love shod. >> you need a lawyer?

3:41 pm
control. a few days earlier, january 16th, a vice president named irv miller wrote an email meant for toyota's inner circle. among other things he wrote we need to come clean. we're not protecting customers by keeping this quiet. and the time to hide on this one is over. miller has retired. fox news contacted him today. he wouldn't comment other than to say it was not the connected to his retirement. the message is clear, somebody at toyota at least one somebody, knew about the company's economical problems before the -- mechanical problems before january. with us, kate linebaugh for the "wall street journal," covering toyota since day one. it took a notch up, i guess. >> yeah. an important distinction to make is that irv miller was communicating with within the public relation group so top executives were already en route to washington where they were
3:42 pm
going to meet with federal safety officials to discuss precisely the mechanical pedal problem that led to the recall. what the communication reveals is that a conflict between the u.s. communications staff and the japanese communications staff, mr. miller's email was directed to a coordinator, a japanese coordinator, that sort of bridges the gaps between the u.s. executives and the japanese executives. >> do we have an idea about how long before the recall did they know there were big problems? was it days, weeks, months? >> it's very clear, and that's been out a while, they knew about the sticky pedal problem going back, i mean even in the north american market, as early as the end of september and were working on identifying the extent of it and trying to
3:43 pm
figure out what a fix could be. but they didn't actually inform nhtsa, the federal safety regulators, until january, two days before the recall on january 21st. >> shepard: and the story continues. it's good of you to be here. thank you very much. we'll check for your articles at, owned by the parent company of this network. >> last week the ipad. this week, a makeover for the iphone. what the gadget's getting that some other phones, frankly, already have. coming up. so kate you were stressed, a lot of junk food on the go and you were... a little irregular, sluggish. my daughter needed activia! so i gave it a try and wow.
